us with the details. >> it happened at the fashion mall in pentagon city earlier today. you can clearly see four men wearing hoods walk into zales jewelry store. at least one suspect is armed with a hammer and begins smashing away at the glass. the others help peel it back and all four grab what they can. they made off with 27 diamond rings, estimated value $128,000. after grabbing the rings the suspects took off running for the nearest exit. it led to the top level of the parking garage where there was a get-away driver in a red sedan. they drove through a closed gate exiting onto 15th street. investigators are checking security cameras in the garage to see if they can get a better description on the car or tag numbers. >> it's pretty scary because you come to the city thinking there's security and there's security all over the mall. so that is pretty gutsy on their behalf. >> they did conceal their identities by wearing hoods and i don't know if it's masks, but they did conceal their faces. so maybe through clothes the public will be able to help us locating these individuals.
